Clevedon Freshwater Angling Club’s Mark Bromsgrove won the club’s latest competition held on the outskirts of Bridgwater.

The latest Clevedon Freshwater Angling Club competition was held at the Sedges Fishery on the outskirts of Bridgwater.

Within the complex, Brick Lake was fished and given the size and openness of the layout, most anglers could see who was catching and who was not, as well as any method being used.

Conditions were very good and a lot of fish could be seen breaking the surface prior to the start. Mark Bromsgrove drew peg 16 which was more or less in the middle of the west bank and fished the long pole using a variety of baits to catch 13lb of silver fish and 77lb 8oz of carp for a match winning 90lb 8oz.

Four pegs away in the bottom corner was Lance Tucker, who used marginal cover as well as open water to put 72lb 12oz of carp in the net for second place. Only four ounces away was press officer Ivan Currie, who fished his favourite straight lead method to catch quality carp for 72lb 8oz and third place.

Andy Devereux continued his run of good form in the silver fish category, winning it by default with 9lb 4oz.
